“Last minute”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012 via mobile

Our stay was comfortable. The room was clean. Management was accommodative in giving us an extra night even though they were heavily booked for the weekend. Did not get a chance to try the pool or jacuzzi it was a busy weekend, hardly stayed in the room. The television remote did not work, but the wifi I used open my iPad made it up, I hardly watch tv.it was quiet. Its not the ritz or Boston but it was okay for the price. But if you want luxury this is not the place for you. I have stayed in plush places and not even sure you can find a place like that in Fresno. Personally I love. Hotels that spend time on the little things like featherdown comforters and dainty toiletries in the bathroom. I did use the coffee maker and it worked fine. We had a problem with the door locking which we reported to management luckily nothing was stolen.

Stayed June 2012, traveled with family

After staying in the Clovis area I found this old gem which was much closer to shopping areas and had a much better rate. The hotel itself is a little blast from the early 90's past, but it is very clean, affordable and ideally located right in the middle of old and new Fresno. Good internet speed, but not too many TV channels to pick from.

Room Tip: I've heard rumor of getting a better rate if you book online using their website.

Front desk staff was VERY friendly. Rooms were clean and smelled fresh. Great location as there are many different places to eat. Had to drive to most, but we preferred to eat at a little Mexican restaurant in the strip mall next to the hotel. Easy to walk to. Great food. Had the continental breakfasts at the hotel. Was good for what we normally eat in the mornings.
Only negatives we had was that the ice machines were not working and neither was the jacuzzi. We had to get our ice from the front desk, which normally wouldn't have been too bad......but it was raining.
Will definitely choose this hotel again when we come back to this area.

Room Tip: If you want quiet...choose the rooms at the far right of the complex.

stayed at the place for one night for business.
It's really more of a golf hotel, not a business place, to be fair. The wifi didn't really work and the room was a bit on the old/dated side, though it was clean and quiet.

Room Tip: the hotel is spread out into various bungalows... some of them are quite a hike from the hotel lobby...

This hotel was undoubtedly built before property prices escalated. Located on the north side of Fresno, about 2 miles east of Highway 99, it is situated on about 7 acres. There are multiple one and two-story buildings spread out in a garden setting. Rooms are spacious. There is a dressing area as well as a large bathroom. Lighting is good. Windows open for fresh air. The room had a desk with 2 chairs, sofa-chair, coffee maker, iron, hair dryer and full length mirror.
There was an analog t.v. The climate control unit was extremely noisy, so much so that I had to turn it off to sleep. Absent was a refrigerator and microwave, though there was ample space for these items in the room.

The room was clean and well maintained, though the decor was decidedly 1960's.

Breakfast is included in the room rate, but the selection is very basic. The hotel has a restaurant, but it was closed on Sundays when I stayed there. There is an Italian restaurant across the street and some fast food restaurants about a block away.

There is plenty of free parking.

Staff was friendly and accommodating.

Tip: Some rooms at the front of the hotel face Shaw, which is very busy. Rooms toward the center and rear of the hotel have no traffic noise.

The Piccadilly Inn Shaw was a wonderful hotel, in a great area. There were about a dozen rooms in many stand alone buildings around the property and a two story building housing probably 3-4 dozen rooms. The rooms were fantastic! They charge to use the lobby computer????? Free happy hour in the afternoon-early evening was ok if you like spicy chicken, I don't. They also had fruit and cheese. Drinks were half off. Breakfast was nothing special. The scrambled eggs had no flavor and were solid. Juice, coffee, toast and sweet rolls. I've had better. Next time will go out for breakfast. But for the hotel we will certainly stay there again. We did get a great price on the weekend we stayed there.

We chose this place after carefully reviewing on Tripadvisor and other sources places to stay in Fresno. We thought we had chosen the most appealing place to stay but were disappointed. As we were driving back to Canada, it served as an okay stopover for one night.
Check-in was pleasant, friendly and quick.
The place has a pool, vending machines, laundry facilities, on-site restaurant and the “free” continental breakfast included bagels, eggs, muffins, bananas, juice and decent coffee The breakfast was hot, well stocked and area regularly monitored by staff.
Our king room was in the Eastbrook wing which was perfect for the pool, laundry and close to Olivers the on-site pub which we did not try out. We noted the loudly clanging gate of the laundry right next to the pool so it may be a good idea to avoid the Westbrook wing rooms which are opposite or next to this area.
The room was dated, spacious and on the ground floor just along from the pool which we noted needs tile work but was clean. The room had a table and two office type chairs, separate vanity and storage area outside of the bathroom.
Unfortunately, while the room itself was clean, the screen on the window desperately needed a good vacuuming and possible replacement (has it ever been vacuumed?). In addition, I woke in the night to hear dripping which we realized in the morning had been from the noisy air conditioner which we had turned off in order to sleep.
We noted a couple of shady looking folks in and around the inn and the fact that some guy let out a huge loud burp down the hallway from our room convinced us that next time we will skip Fresno and try Madeira, about 15mins drive away which has a Marriott Springhill Suites.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the clanging gate of the laundry area
